The theme this month was political coins including coups revolutions and voting. No picture this month as for some reason the photograph would not load. You will have to use your imagination.

Members brought medallions featuring Eighteenth Century elections and political groups and more modern coins. these included a coin commemorating the recent Turkish coup, some heroes of various independence struggles and newish 50 p relating to voting reforms.

Being political is a good way to get your head on a coin. think of all the presidents, freedom fighters and rulers. I wonder which politicians you would like to see on a coin?
